: : There! That's much better than "No Messages Posted". The only thing that would make this morning any better is a Mohicanland coffee mug and a visit from the Puuuuummmmpkiiiiiin Fairy! I need a pumpkin...have a request for a "Carved Gnome".
: : Dana
: First you need to roast him at 325 degrees -- l/2 hour
: per pound of gnome. If he's dried, you'll have to soak
: him in water overnight before roasting. If he's fresh,
: just put a little crabapple in his mouth and pop him
: in the oven! (Don't forget the apple, unless you want
: to hear a lot of annoying screeching!) When you can
: stick a fork in him easily, remove from oven, let sit
: for 15 minutes, then carve. I know Lainey prefers cajun-
: style Blackened Gnome, but I prefer them plain. Call me
: old-fashioned. Hope this helps!

Actually, I prefer to carve up these gnomes a bit, stuff a fat beeswax candle in its mouth & let it sit on some Dutch stoop throughout the chilly Harvest Moon nights. Then, once All Hallow's Eve has passed, I like to burn them to dust. Wood Gnome ash ...
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust ... it's a handy base for some damn good soap.
That's my personal favorite heirloom receipt anyway.
PS Doctor M, of course your Charlatan Cabin will be logistically situated in very close proximity to the Trading Post! You'll be needed for an occasional shake down.
